Despite the fractured state of our country, the “viciousness” in DC surprised Ivanka Trump, according to her own words.

Given how sold out the establishment was (and is) to Hillary Clinton, it is hard to say why the opposition to her father’s Presidency has surprised Ivanka Trump. Perhaps she means the opposition from Republicans who ought to be grateful to him for their new ascendancy.

On the other hand, while troubles may have surprised Ivanka, she remains classy, putting the problems facing the working class ahead of her own.

Mediaite reports, “Ivanka Trump to Fox & Friends: Did Not Expect This ‘Level of Viciousness’ in Washington D.C.” But they spend most of the post criticizing the Trump presidency. Finally, they get to the point of the headline:

The interview was filled with both the sort of softball questions and politically expedient bromides one might expect in such chummy confines. The one bit of interest came when the presidential daughter admitted that the level of meanness they’ve felt inside the Beltway caught her off-guard.

Critics are sure to point out that President Trump’s demeanor towards his past and current political foes has not always been civil, though that is a topic for anther conversation.

Here’s the clip from the Washington Free Beacon’s YouTube channel:
